The the beginning of Jerry's first solo and the ending of his last solo on Bird Song from the Fillmore East 4-28-71 (starting at 8:00 minutes in on "Ladies and Gentlemen ..." disc 1) features a lovely little finger-picked take on Shady Grove (same tune as Gypsy Davey). Both Bob and Jerry fingerpick their way through a sweet Dark Hollow, which follows Bird Song on the aforementioned commercial release.

I agree, the fingerpickin' and slide playing (any version of It Hurts Me Too from Europe 72 tour) added a whole another dimension to the tunes . . . little journeys into their musical roots.
